    Help me help you

    If you are going to call the police for a vehicle who "assaulted you" say, hypothetically, by throwing a water bottle at you.. (after you yelled at them to "slow down" over a perceived misconception of vehicular speed), then if you cannot get a vehicle license plate thats fine.

    What is not helpful is a description of a car as a "black sports car". also generalizations such as "its low to the ground" and "dark windows" does NOT help me.

    Again, to recap.

    Helpful: "the car is a new style Monte Carlo, probably 2000 or newer, and it had a headlight out. The plate was AGS3838. The driver was a white guy with blond hair, short."

    Not helpful: "its a white van. Maybe a Chevy or a Ford". "Its a dark colored 2 door car" "the first two digits of the plate are 31" (esp. if the county you are in starts with the same two digit prefix for every in county plate).

    /rant. Thank you, that is all

    I have to agree. The public, God bless their souls try but just can't quite get it.

    What if you're embarrassed about identifying a criminal by race? Can you just say "The driver had a burnt sienna skin tone and sepia hair"?

    NOPE!!
    You are a sniper when all other methods to save a life are failing...
    You are a counter-sniper when someone else thinks they are as good as you with a rifle.

    Were you listening to my calls yesterday?

    I had a lady wanting to file a police report for road rage. She admitted to pulling into a lane where a car already happened to be. But the other driver followed her, yelled at her, and splashed water on her car.

    She called me on her cell phone, as she was leaving to go back home.

    Actually, Jenna brings up a good point. Some people feel like they have to apologize if the DB was of another race.

    Remember when Robin Wright Penn (Sean's wife aka Princess bride) got car-jacked? She tells the 911 operator they "seemed so nice."

    Ya know, if someone car-jacked my vehicle, while my child was in the car, it would be "those (insert race) mother f*ckers jacked my car!

    Cool

    One of my favorites: "This truck driver on I-80 in front of me is drunk or on drugs. He's swerving and can't control his truck!" Listen, bitch. This is the high plains of Western Nebraska. There are almost no trees and definitely no hills. It's freakin' flat, he's driving a truck pulling an empty box trailer and the wind is blowing FIFTY miles per hour from North to South. Do the math and stay the hell out of his way!!!! He's trying to feed his kids and you're probably just going to Vegas to bang your boss. SHUT UP!!!! BTW, whatever you do, don't tell 911 about the forty "Kees" of Satan's Pride in the trunk!!!!!
